UPDATED: SPY PHOTO SHOWS BLUE BRAMMO ENERTIA IN BEST BUY
Many Bothans died to bring us this photo, showing a Euro Blue Enertia in the Best Buy store in Thurrock, Essex, UK. Notice how it is ringed with halos of angelic light, while the puke green Tesla Roadster (which will NOT be sold in any Best Buy anywhere) is relegated to the shadows.
According to AV Enthusiast, a UK-based blog specializing in audio/video news, Best Buy UK will begin selling the Brammo Enertia at its new Thurrock, Essex store in August 2010.
The article about Best Buy and Brammo contains the following relevant information:
Leading the charge in electric transportation, Best Buy will have exclusive as well as other popular vehicles on sale. In store will be one of the largest selections of top-of-the-range electric bicycles like the Gocycle, the cool urban performance commuter tool, and brands like Ultramotor with its Urban, Hybrid and Metro bikes and Moore & Large’s Izip range. Prices start at £399.99 and Best Buy’s Geek Squad – the 24 hour technology support and advice service – will be on hand to provide set up assembly free in-store to ride straight away, or arrange delivery of any brand new electric bicycle fully set up for as little as £49.99.
Only available at Best Buy in the UK, the Brammo Enertia electric motorcycle – a blend of old school purist motorcycling elements and new school technology to make the future of motorcycles – will be on-show in all Best Buy stores and available to buy from August. Sticking to two wheels, the “GreenTech” area will be home to top electric scooters from Xero Tech; the Urban Citi, Urban Tourer and the Classic, with prices starting at £1,499.99.
I’m not sure what they mean by “Only available at Best Buy in the UK . . . .” Unless someone is holding out on me about the displays in four California and two Oregon Best Buy stores, the reporter apparently didn’t do his/her homework.
